I have a LOT of homework to do but M83, The field, James Blake, future islands and Sleigh bells may just get me there. I hate how all the festivals are multi days now. Hard getting off work
"HIGH END RAP MUSIC! GHETTO STADIUM SHIT! THEY AIN'T WANT US AT THE FESTIVALS
NOW WE WILL RUN THEM!"
well yeah cause they did the same price bracket thing last year
As far as long lines, or lack of concessions/water etc., I didn't experience any of that last year. The festival seemed well run, and I had a great time.
The few electronic acts booked last year were some of my favorites sets of the day (Four Tet in particular), so I'm happy to see more of the same this year. Baring conflicts, I would love to see SMD (despite them being kind of uneven last year), Gold Panda, The Field, DJ Harvey, and Tiger & Woods.
I also wonder how many people will show up at Aesop Rock thinking it's A$AP Rocky.
EDIT - forgot to mention the Field; it's easy to overlook a name on a poster that stacked
I see James Blake on that side stage where OTC, Dan deacon, and others played. The one with the trees. At night.
I listen to the Field almost every day. I'd be a fool not to give this fest a chance.
and, of course, The Field.
This is one pretty little festival.

come on, the drive's not that bad.
Aaaand, I'm really excited. So many bands I love here. However, the ticket price is a bummer since I'm kinda broke. I've had free VIP since the show moved to the LA State Park, so hoping that pulls through again this year...
Damn $77 for a weekend pass? Wasn't this festival 30-40 last year? Was that one day only though?
So no 1 day passes?
It's still 35 to 40 bucks. It's just 2 days. And the lineup is rad. So stop fucking whining.
VIP weekend passes are available for $169, while supplies last. The VIP beer garden is centrally located and has a viewing area for the main stage. Inside the VIP section there will be additional specialty food and drink options and a full bar, large shade tents to get out of the heat and comfortable couches to get off of your feet and relax.
I might consider it, I guess. I personally didn't have a huge problem with the dust last year. And just look at the line up! It is pretty damn spectacular. So excited to finally see Red Kross.
Teenage Fanclub| Sigur Rós| Coachella| A Perfect Circle| A Perfect Circle| A Perfect Circle| Flaming Lips| U2| U2| Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
I have a hard time considering any of those stages a "main stage."
And I agree with Bryan that Red Kross were great at Coachella 2008.
